THE ALR 2012 OLYMPIC TEAM
A team of nine ALR poets have been selected to represent their countries at Poetry Parnassus, the literary event at the peak of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad at London's South Bank Centre in June. Poets from over 200 of the competing nations will attend.
Two other Olympic poets appear in the pages of our latest issue, which came out on 8 May 2012.
Reuniting North and South Korea - at least in print - Jang Jin-sung
from North Korea appears for the first time in English, while Kim Hyesoon
of South Korea joins us with new poems in their first translation.
